# Add-ons
Add-ons are specific accessory that can extend functionality of Turris MOX but
compared to the modules is not connected via MOXTET bus and doesn't change the
size of the boxed device.
## Wi-Fi SDIO
If you add the MOX Wi-Fi add-on (SDIO) to your [MOX Start](sets/start.md) set,
you will get a Wi-Fi router with Bluetooth support.
It contains AzureWave AW-CM276NF, internal FLEX antenna, gain 2 dBi for 2.4 GHz
/ 3 dBi for 5 GHz, chipset Marvell 88W8997, Bluetooth 4.2 with BLE support,
transfer speeds 5 GHz up to 866 Mbps / 2.4 GHz up to 300 Mbps.
## Wi-Fi mPCIe
The MOX Wi-Fi add-on (mPCIe) is significantly faster than SDIO and is the
recommended Wi-Fi card for modules [B (Extension)](modules/b.md) and [G (Super
Extension)](modules/g.md). It was tested with the device and is guaranteed to
work correctly.
It contains Compex WLE900VX card, internal FLEX antenna, gain 2 dBi for 2.4 GHz
/ 3 dBi for 5 GHz, chipset QCA 9880, transfer speed 5 GHz up to 1.3 Gbps / 2.4
GHz up to 450 Mbps.
## PoE
The MOX PoE add-on can be used to provide power to the Turris MOX router over
Ethernet without having to use a separate power cable. It connects to the [MOX A
(Basic)](modules/a.md) module which is part of all MOX sets. It is
compliant with IEEE standards 802.3at and 802.3af and recommended maximum load
is 15W.
# About
![Turris MOX](mox.jpg)
The Turris MOX is a unique modular router suitable for small and medium
enterprises, geeks and the households of all users who are aware of the
internet’s risks. Thanks to its secure default configuration, automatic
firmware updates and adaptive distributed firewall, the product is very secure.
The Turris MOX is also open source – it runs a free Linux operating system
(based on OpenWrt).
## What to buy
If you want something ready to go, you can buy a Turris MOX as a complete set.
[Pocket Wi-Fi](sets/pocketwifi.md) and [Power Wi-Fi](sets/powerwifi.md) are for
completely wireless solution but configuration is a little bit trickier due to
only one Ethernet port. The easiest to configure and the most common
configuration is [Classic](sets/classic.md)). That one contains both Wi-Fi and
Ethernet ports and thus is much easier to configure.
For more advance use-cases, you might want to build your own MOX. For that you
will need the basic set [MOX Start](sets/start.md), decide what you need and pick
from the list of modules and add-ons how to extend it.
### List of modules and add-ons

# MOX B (Extension)
## Key features
MOX B allows you to add more hardware to your configuration. It contains a
mPCIe slot for a compatible Wi-Fi card, disk controller or LTE modem. If you
choose to install an LTE modem, the MOX B features a SIM card slot that you can
use.
If you use Wi-Fi networks, we recommend using the original MOX [Wi-Fi add-on
(mPCIe)](../addons.md#wi-fi-mpcie) which can deliver significantly higher
speeds than SDIO Wi-Fi.
## Specification
![Picture of the board](b.jpg)
* 1× SIM card slot

* Humidity: 10% to 90% RH, Non-condensing
## Compatibility
There can be only one MOX B module in the configuration; the PCIe bus is
terminated there. For this reason, the MOX B cannot be combined with MOX F. If
you need a module with the same parameters but with PCIe signal passing
through, choose [MOX G](g.md).
This module can be used **only as an extension in a set**. You will need at
least [MOX Start](../sets/start.md). It is included in the
[MOX Power Wi-Fi](../sets/powerwifi.md) and
[MOX Classic](../sets/classic.md) sets. If you’re combining it with other
modules, make sure they are compatible. You can verify the order of modules and
pass-through of PCIe and SGMII signals in the configurator on

# MOX F (USB)
## Key features
The F module expands your configuration with more USB 3.0 ports with transfer
speeds of up to 5 Gbps that you can use to connect external drives, TV tuners
and other devices.
If using module F use this module to power the whole set. It‘s possible to
power the whole set from module F without using a power supply connector on
module A. It is also possible to use both connectors at the same time.
Recommended average load for USB ports on module F while using all ports and
using power supply on module F is 800mA maximum per port. This limit should be
more than enough for ordinary usage. If you need a little bit more we recommend
using additional cooling. While using power supply on module A only the limit
is significantly lower, up to unusable. The real limit depends on other
connected modules.
## Specification
![Picture of the board](f.jpg)
* 4x USB 3.0 ports
* DC input 12 V ± 5 % / 5 A

![MOX Start](classic.jpg)
## About
{! hw/mox/sets/generic_mox.md !}
Choose the MOX Classic if you want both wireless connectivity and the option to
connect several devices by Ethernet cable.
This set consists of the [MOX A (Basic)](../modules/a.md) module, a power
source, a microSD card, the [MOX B (Extension) module](../modules/b.md), [MOX C
(Ethernet) module](../modules/c.md), [MOX Wi-Fi add-on
(SDIO)](../addons.md#wi-fi-sdio) and [MOX Wi-Fi add-on
(mPCIe)](../addons.md#wi-fi-mpcie).
The MOX Classic configuration can be expanded with accessories. But there are
many reasons to fall in love:
{! hw/mox/sets/feature_list.md !}
* Automatic updates – with MOX, you are always running the latest firmware with all security patches. You don’t have to worry about anything.
* Attack identification – MOX can identify suspicious data streams and send information about them to the Turris headquarters. All you have to do is to enable this feature to improve your protection.
* Distributed adaptive firewall – the Turris headquarters automatically compares data received from thousands of routers in the network and if it identifies an attack, firewall updates are send right away to all Turris devices.
* Network storage (NAS) – each Turris MOX can be used as a shared network storage and can easily become your media server.
* Private cloud – why give your sensitive data to cloud services on the internet and pay for the privilege of doing so? Run your own cloud on MOX.
* Easy VPN – with MOX, you can set up an encrypted connection to your corporate or home network with a few clicks.
* High performance – the 1 GHz dual core processor can do everything you’d expect from it.
* Functional design – the design of the MOX with integrated antennas and without a single screw is very practical.
## Compatibility
If you’re combining the set with other modules, make sure they are compatible.
You can verify the order of modules and pass-through of PCIe and SGMII signals
in the configurator on <https://mox-configurator.turris.cz>.
